I just wanted to thank you again, it is hard to get across how much we appreciate the work you put in. I will speak for all of us at CEA and say we could not have pushed forward like we are without you and your company and also the work of the BDC.

"Before a business gets into a sudden growth situation, says Stephen Beamish, entrepreneur in residence (EIR) with Launch Lab, it’s important to be prepared for the possibility by having laid out a vision, targets and financial goals."

I just had my final meeting with Stephen Beamish. My experience with him over several months was invaluable. Stephen is knowledgeable, thorough, practical, dedicated, and motivating. Even though I have been in business for thirty-one years, I learned about the strengths and weaknesses of my product, and new ways to promote it. Stephen devised a customized roadmap plan that I can follow to measure my success. I feel ready, energized, and eager, and I know my enthusiasm will last.
